So, Im looking at grad schools this month. I would like to move to a city that is at least as veg-friendly as Austin is. I love Austin, but I want something new. Anyway, its a small city with a young population and a lot of character. What other towns, cities like that are in the US? Im looking at Portland right now. Unfortunately there is no graduate program for me in Seattle.<br><br><br><br>
Thank you for your help!

If you like the desert, Tucson is pretty vegan-friendly, probably not as much as Portland though. Do you really want that much rain though?

Depending on the grad program you want, there is always Ann Arbor (#10 veg friendly city in america) and the University of Michigan.<br><br><br><br>
But take that quiz, and get the list of the top veg cities and see if any match with a school.

Boulder, CO is incredibly veg friendly. Not sure if they would have the program you're looking for though.

I think you should move to Portland. I've never been there but a few movies I've seen have been filmed there, looks like it'd be an ok place ...he he <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It really depends on what you're looking for in a city. Generally the entire San Francisco bay area is pretty vegetarian friendly. For schools there's Stanford, UC Berkeley, San Francisco State, San Jose State, UC San Francisco, University of San Francisco and other private colleges. The weather is fantastic, it's a very culturally diverse area, there are a lot of interesting people here, wine tasting abounds in all directions, the Sierra Nevada is a few hours away for both summer and winter activites, you've got the Pacific ocean or the bay for water activities. Of course with all that to offer, it's a very expensive place to live.

My sister was in Eugene, OR during her vegan days - there are a LOT of veg*n friendly places there. (This is where University of Oregon is.)<br><br><br><br>
I would not recommend Pittsburgh.
